What is the OLE indicator?
The OLE (Overall Labour Effectiveness) indicator consists of three indices: availability, performance and quality of the workforce, but how are these values determined?
- Availability: is represented by the presence or absence of the workforce (justified and unjustified absences, together with other problems that may occur). Even the preparation of operators affects the performance of availability because some equipment, for their correct operation, require special certifications from operators.
- Performance: that is the time spent by the operator to realize and to deliver a product, for this reason it is fundamental also the moment of initial setup of the equipments.
- Quality: is the value that allows decision makers to understand if internal resources follow processes and instructions using the tools in an appropriate way.
